Bioelectronic medicine is a relatively new area that focuses on developing methods for treating diseases that do not need medications. Bioelectronic medicine treatments are now possible thanks to a small embedded system that produces and delivers frequent digital doses to nerve bundles, resulting in a disease-fighting effect that can last hours or days and is based on mechanisms similar to drug therapies. Although this may sound like science fiction, electronic brain and nerve stimulators are now presence applicable to treat so many of ailments, including epilepsy, Parkinson's disease, and bladder control. Progress in treating such disorders has opened up possibilities for boosting memory, improving eyesight, strengthening a shaky gait, and even improving a golfer's swing. Those self-improvement dreams may be a long way off, but bioelectronic medicine is gaining traction as a new way to treat difficult diseases. What distinguishes bioelectronic medicine is its biological effect on the body, which goes beyond symptom management to treat the underlying condition by using the body's own mechanisms. With promising early results in many trials and further trials ongoing, bioelectronic therapies are likely to be accepted for clinical use within the next few years. To make this advancement possible, forward-thinking scientists, engineers, doctors, and innovators with specialised talents combined old and new discoveries in ways no one had before.
